Due to a longtime dental industry and technology advancement, dental implants truly become successful and widely accepted standard for the teeth set reconstruction. Regardless of the tooth loss cause, dental implants are proven as more efficient and simple solution to restoring teeth when compared to traditional ones.

Dental implants are the most advanced dental restoration treatment of entire jaw. Although you have a number of restorative options for the treatment of missing teeth, none have proven to be as functionally effective and durable as implants.

A dental implant is a small screw which is embedded into the bone of the upper or lower jaw and serves as a substitute for the lost tooth root. This is an ‘artificial’ root, made from titanium, which is the most compatible material for the human bone. Titanium is used due to its biological neutrality, (bio-compatibility – it is durable and compatible with bone/tissue), which is very important for the tissue to accept the embedded foreign body. Also, it does not disturb the surrounding tissue nor does the body reject them.

Advantages of installing dental implants

  • simulating the natural function of the tooth root, implants will act as prosthetic compensation, providing a wide range of restoration

  • compared with classical dental prosthetic treatments, implants enable adjacent teeth to remain undamaged because it doesn’t require drilling of the surrounding teeth

  • they provide maximum aesthetic appearance of teeth and gums (looks natural in your mouth)

  • complete rehabilitation of chewing and speech

  • acting like the natural tooth root, implants will properly stress the bone and prevent its further loss

The purpose of dental implant surgery

  • as a replacement of a missing tooth

  • as dental bridge carriers in case of total, terminal edentulism , where implants are the only solution for prosthetic compensation and the future prosthetic replacement

  • as dental bridge carriers which make up for multiple tooth loss

The dental implant installation process

Pre operative planning of the treatment includes team making decisions on implant placement possibility, site installation, type of dental implant for the rehabilitation of your teeth. This will be based on clinical examination, additional X-ray analysis, and other considerations. All these aspects of treatment will be taken into account to create an individual treatment plan that will meet your needs.

Implants can replace almost any lost tooth. The procedure itself takes about the same amount of time as any other oral/surgical intervention and is completely painless. After putting in the implant and waiting the required length of time for osseointegration, the final prosthodontic work is done, which completes the restoration.

Computer guided dental implantology

It is based upon the findings of the patient CT scan which is used for virtual treatment planning. This technology presents precise and accurate diagnostic tool which displays complete bone condition and its changes. It also allows clinician to punctiliously detect adjacent teeth, if a patient have a one, position of nerves, blood vessels and sinuses.

The computer program produces highly accurate 3-D reconstruction of the digital model of the patient’s dental bone condition, which is the basis for an accurate planning of the implant placement procedure. Besides, Scan data gives an insight into the required number of implants to be placed, their length, diameter, angulation and its correlation with surrounding vital structures. Additionally, this program sets up high precision in surgical as well as in prosthetic treatment.

How to choose the best quality dental implant

There are many types of dental implants on the market today. We use only proven, thoroughly tested and internationally recognized implants, able to provide maximal safety and best results. Ankylos (www.dentsplyimplants.com) , Nobel (www.nobelbiocare.com) , Ihde (www.implant.com).

The prices of dental implants vary, depending on many factors, all of which should be considered when choosing an implant. Everyone must decide for themselves what best suits his/her needs, but one should be very careful since the cheapest dental implant does not necessarily mean that it is the best bargain. Finally, complications arising from placing a cheap dental implant of poor quality can cost you a lot more than an expensive dental implant of better quality.
